In most parts of the world. Thermal technologies are mainly relied upon to provide the heat needs of various household, residential and solar applications. This study reviews the thermal performance improvement processes of the most widely used low temperature solar collector (LTSCs) including flat plate collectors (FPCs), by reviewing problems and challenges and discussing the possibilities for future research. In this regard, an analysis of the thermal energy of the solar collector is presented in addition to the latest technologies developed to enhance the possibility of collecting heat in the LTSCs that have been discussed in the previous studies. The steps reviewed in this study completely cover the main modifications, the surfaces of the absorption layers, and the further collection of heat to be used in different areas.
